SYNOPSIS - PAINt is the story of Crystal Hayes, an African-American woman that cross dresses as a man (known as HAZE) to go out into the dangerous, yet mysterious world of graffiti artists.
A college student by day, she takes care of her grandmother that she lives with while sneaking out at night to see her girlfriend, Deidre and also to create art on the billboards and rooftops of the city.
Haze’s life becomes more difficult when she uses her college loan money to pay the rent and is recruited by an older, street hustling, graffiti artist, Pablo.
HISTORY - PAINt was developed in weekly workshops at Fierce Backbone Theatre Co. in Hollywood, California where the play also was selected for a special Company Development Weekend Intensive.
